My book "Articulations: On The Utilisation and Meanings of Psychedelics" is now available, just in time for Christmass!

I have created a little web site for the site book here:

http://www.articulationsbook.com

There are 3 ways you can buy.

1) From me direct, the advantage for me is I get more money from this and you get it quicker, especially if you live in Melbourne, where you can pick it up from a friend in Thornbury and save $8 postage. (I am in South Africa atm)

You can buy from me on the articulations web site via Paypal, or send me $25 via bank transfer if you are going to pick it up. Or bank transfer me $33 including postage. Send me a message and I'll send you bank details and I can also give you a quote for multiple copies.

2) From Amazon.com, where they have just listed it.

http://www.amazon.co...s/dp/099255280X

3) From your local bookstore who can order it in for you.

nice work, can you explain in brief detail how this adds to the existing body of knowledge?

 

also can we get a sample chapter?

DiscoStu,

 

For one thing, I don't believe in knowledge per se. I believe in understanding and perception, which the book encourages. The act of reading it should be one of connectively understandings oneself and one's own internal experiences. Fixed knowledge is passe. There is groundbreaking stuff on the acacias in there however. You may have heard of a smoking blend called "changa"? Well, I am the pioneer of that.

I'll post an excerpt at some point soon!


Julian.

It does appear interesting to me. Not so much the practical guides.. Although they seem like possibly a good thing maybe to have a reliable one-stop tutorial.

Maybe it doesn't "add" much but seems like almost too good of a launching point.
-just because replies haven't been thick n fast in the affirmative to your theorizing , doesn't necessaily mean no-one here cares or understands you , or even that they're asleep because they're not arguing your point the way you see the world and how each paradigm fits into that. I've read so many wondefully worded and DEEP shit on sab over the years, that it rivals published works in some cases.....bloody not as dry that's for shiz. Personally, i'd say, some people here know what you are saying, have probably explored the presented ideas in their own time previously but naturally, would rather, skip, run, twirl and dance to the beat of their own drum when it comes to these matters. So just because someone for example, does not want to fill in a space on your dance card, does not mean that you should stop airing your views for discussion. How many times does a thread metamorphosize like some organic creature flapping it's wings for the first time here in sabland.... and in the end -the seeker finds at the very least- some answers to their question. Alot of the time you need to knead that dough thoroughly before it's ready for the oven tin. -quote from etherealdrifter

Thunderideal,

Read it first and then you tell me! :-) There is a enormous amount of new insight and information in this book! I share a lot of techniques, my understandings of new cultural forms and practises and settings in which to explore these materials.

Thing is, absolute newbies will get as much from this, as even the most experienced people.

I've really downloaded all the stuff that I have picked up along the way that is not well known or known at all, and put it in here.

It would be a good christmass present for mum or dad who may not see the revelance of this sort of work! :wink:

The Kindle edition is coming very soon!


Julian.

I must say I share many of the views espoused in the Chapter 7 excerpt. Nicely articulated good sir! :)
